Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    He doesn't have a clinical practice so the only way for your son to go there would be to participate in his research.

    Exactly Sushi, I had heard he was going to be doing more MRI research on the brain in the future. Since my son has severe brain fog, maybe they would include him in some of the research.
    We are not that far from him so that would be a plus too. Anything we can do to advance research !!!

    Look up his website and get in contact with his research coordinator, there are great chances they are recruiting now, if not you can join their mailing list.

    I've applied for specific studies. It is easy to do online. You fill out a questionnaire.

    Thanks Kati and Sushi, I have already done this and we are just waiting. Maybe since both my son and myself have similar problems they will take us both ! We'll see, have not heard anything from them though....
    Maybe we'll meet there !!!!

    I did hear back, though I don't remember the time-line. You won't meet me there though because I wasn't accepted for the study!

    This is a study in which each patient gives blood every day to try to find out what is driving variations in how PWME/fibro feel from day to day. (I think Nancy Klimas has taken a similar approach.)

    It's an interesting video and well worth a listen. Thanks to Dr. Younger for the update!

    I'm unclear on whether these variations are also seen in healthy individuals. If healthy individuals had variations in the same range as patients, it would suggest that the problems lies not with the variations themselves, but rather with patients' atypical reactions to these variations. To have an effect on the symptoms, you might have to reduce leptin (for example) to some level that is lower than what is found in a healthy individual.
